1- 47 wolves have already been slaughtered this year that are ENDANGERED. Yes, Sarah Palin has a hand in it, always. Ugh.
2- This is what I read in one of my emails today from a great organization, "Massive red cliffs cut by the winding Colorado River make up the awe-inspiring views of the Grand Canyon. Big horn sheep grace the outcrops, and bald eagles dot the skyline. But, unless we take action right now, that magnificent view will include drilling equipment and mounds of toxic mining debris. In the last days of his presidency, President Bush has pushed through a deal to permit uranium mining at the edge of the Grand Canyon." Stupid Bush and his idiotic plans before he gets out of office! So hopefully, Obama will make this one of his top priorities. I LIKE the Grand Canyon! Geez...
3- Israel and Gaza. From CNN today: "Israel has moved tanks to the outskirts of Gaza and called up at least 2,000 army reservists, sparking fears of a ground incursion into the Palestinian territory. The Israeli military says it is targeting only Hamas militants. But Karen AbuZayd, the commissioner-general of the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, said 20 to 25 percent of the casualties arriving in Gaza hospitals appear to be civilians, and she said the bombardment is not turning the people of the territory against Hamas.
Here is something pretty neat though! The Times Square ball has doubled its size and is FOUR times the mass of last year's crystal ball! You can watch the video below to learn more!
Happy New Year!!! I will have to do a post later about what I've done this year.
